Radios


Recommended Posts

Would it be possible to add radios in? Stationary and handheld of course. You would be able to find both of them while looting military spots. That way if you had a camp or base you could have the stationary and be able to communicate to handhelds and other bases.

Think of the rp quality? Being to listen in on other channels to spy, use it for trading purposes, or even broadcast at the same time everyday like I Am Legend. lol.

The stationary radio should have a channel that broadcasts over a loud speaker in large towns.

Thoughts?

I'm probably not the first to think of this.

I think you'd need Rmod for this or to propose it to Rocket. Sounds like a cool thing to do. Most clans use teamspeak or equivalent however for individual players it would be awesome. Lots of RP prospects too. For example the Outpost may be getting robbed and they could send a SOS message over the radio and people may come to defend it.

The only way to achieve this functionality is to implement ACRE mod. It was rumored that radios will be present in Standalone. Due to the fact that Alpha(or even pre alpha) of SA is being launched as we speak I wouldnt count on more mod addition to this server than Rmod and goodies that can come with it.

It's funny how much info can be found with google within 2 minutes :P

Links I found about ACRE and Dayz.

, plus after finding this there is a reasonable chance some sort of radio comms will make it to DayZ sooner or later :)

Server running ACRE and other mods

Some additional stuff

Hints how to make it working

love this idea, though it has been mentioned in the offical forums quiet often ( i think). i'd love this to come along with an banhammer for:

-teamspeak

-skype

-vent

-mumble

-etc.

so you can only communicate in game which would be quiet cool.

i imagine sneaking through an abandoned old factory and suddenly you start hearing voices from other players, maybe torturing someone or such things.

had been suggested here as well as in the offical forums though :D

In my opinion that is a ludicrous suggestion.

To regulate such metagaming would involve use of spyware.

People use their computers for socialising and the applications listed are media for socialising and communication, not only metagaming.

I do not want to be restricted and forced to shut down applications during DayZ.

And what's to stop me from utilising a second device to metagame?

This. As much as I'd love the idea of only in game radio communication in DayZ, there's no possible way to make it work.

why not? i mean blocking them only while in-game? no need to socialize when you play with friends? when you play ESL shooter (for example) you have some "social restrictions", too (afaik)

I wasn't sure what you were talking about so I googled it.

Ooooookay...

But on topic, no, there is no way to police it that I would be comfortable with.

Well its simple..... Make two servers. One will stay as RP1 as it is now and the hardcore RP2 for example with radio and banhammer for TS, mumble etc. Real hardcore RP players will not mind about such restrictions because of possible metagame.

How do you do that? Third party software that observes what processes you're running? Or just take people at their word?

God Lestrade. Do you know how GMs on RP servers where the TS, mumble and such software using is against rules are working? Nope? I will give you an example: Two guys are runing trough the map about 15 mins. they have GM on them in invis and he would not hear any voice (in Dayz can it be direct channel and the radio) chat or text chat in this 15 min. They are cooperating like charm without any official provided ingame comunications. They both dont care if by exploring one of the building the second one appear behind theyr back and did not even take a look behind them. This is only one of many situations where the GM will be able to see that something weird is going on.

You do realize that they might be also playing next to eachother?

Well and how high do you think is the chance they will get different IP for connection when playing next to eachother?

First, though I can understand the confusion I am not, in fact, a god. Secondly, I'm not 100% clear on how much we're observed here. Are there GMs watching every single group 24/7 right now on our single server? That would be 25 GMs at max watching as many 2 man teams. If so, fair enough. I hope they're getting good money for so mind numbing and dull a task.

Haters gonna hate isnt? You have in your country enough police officers to observe every single 2 ppl. group? Dont think so. You can never prevent 100% of violations against law or rules.

This was just my opinion you know.

We have such quote in Czech republic:

Who wants to do somethinkg then he is looking for options.

Who do not wants somethink then he is looking for excusses why cant it work.

Are you suggesting that because your solution is bad I don't want more rp? I'm looking for options and I see a whole bunch I don't like. I have nothing to gain by clans, none of which I am a part of, being able to co-ordinate their robbing of my goods better with third party software.

The same as to Lestrade. I do not wont to observe us for 24 and i know they have a LIFE i was a GM on some serveres and i know whats a GM work is about. But do you think such players will use it once? Suprise! They will not lol. They will be observed once and the gms will see it. No need to 24/7 observe anyone.

Very trainded? Ok i will put you with someone (with your team mate for example) will spawn you in Kamenka and would tell you guys to go to Novy Sobor. Lets see if you will able go there with looting populated areas and go trough some firefight without comunication.

i did it regualr with some IRL mates (you know escape from cherno?) simple as that you designate one leader and some codes (like crouch twice or such things) and tada... we escaped in 2 out of 10 times (which is not so bad i think)
